Pros:Variety of settings and speeds, cozy and soft, neutral colors
Cons:Swinging can be noisy but it's better than a crying baby :)
The Bottom Line: This swing is soft and neutral - perfect for every baby in every home!
This swing is a soft, cuddly, cute lamb cradle that can swing both vertically and horizontally. It has a variety of music and sound effects (nature sounds, birds, water, etc.) as well as a rotating mobile. The swing is also equipped with a mirror that was very fun for my daughter. Whenever she would wake up in her swing, I would hear her "talking" to herself in the mirror. There is a detachable tray that has some toys on it and a small rattle as well. The safety harness is easy to buckle and unbuckle - whether you have only one hand available or both! It is a battery operated swing that utilizes 4 D batteries. I have found that the batteries last quite a while so long as you do not have the swing in constant motion. I generally turn it off after my daughter falls to sleep and she never wakes up after turning it off. Some children do require the swing to be in motion in order to stay asleep - if that's the case for you, then you may need to invest in a quite a few batteries or would be wise to purchase a plug in style.

This swing is white with brown, blue, and light green accents making it perfect for both girls and boys. Its neutral colors make it a welcome addition to any living room (unlike some of the unsightly pink or bright blue ones on the market!). White may scare some parents of newborns prone to spitting up but the cover is easily removed and machine washable. The volume has a variety of levels making it something that you won't mind keeping in your living room while you are enjoying your favorite TV show.
The swing is easily adjusted and controlled from the dials on the top. Also, the music and mobile shut off automatically to save battery life. There are 8 different speeds to accomodate both newborns and young infants alike. My daughter used it as a newborn from day 1 home from the hospital and she is still using it occasionally as a 4 1/2 month old. She naps in it and just "chills" in it listening to the music and watching herself in the mirror.
This awesome swing has so many features that it is really hard to pass up. The price is comparable to other swings and is well worth it. The idea of not having to rock your newborn into a nap every single time is amazing! I would highly recommend this swing to everyone!
